nRF Connect for desktop has proven its flexibility by being cross platform and ability to install and update applications based on users need.
Our initial goal was to modernize and cover all nRF5 series features as seen in our legacy tools for Windows – namely nRF Connect and nRFgo Studio.
One popular feature found in nRFgo Studio for nRF5 series devices has been to interact with flash from a GUI (erase/recover, write). This feature has been missing in nRF Connect for Desktop.
Today we are sharing an early release of the Programmer app with you, that let you do flash based operations to nRF5 kits as in nRFgo Studio. Even though it is not a final release, we have found it useful on our side, and think you should get to try as well. The application can easily be installed from the "Add/Remove apps"-feature in nRF Connect for Desktop.
As stated previously, this is an early release which is a bit rough around the edges. It will have bugs, and the GUI is not what we plan to have for the final release.
We hope that it is easy to get started with this application, but here are some hints that you may be aware of:
We are depending on your feedback to be able to release the v1.0 version of the application as quick, bug free and user friendly as possible. We therefore urge you to post comments, feedback and suggestions in the comment section below in this blog post.
We are constantly improving and adding applications to nRF Connect Desktop. With the Programmer app, you have a cross platform and flexible managed application that we hope you like. Keep in mind that this is not the final version, and we are depending on your feedback while working our way to the final v1.0 release.
Oh, and did you know that the SDK examples comes pre-compiled and, are ready to test for its relevant target? You may test by simply drag and drop the hex files to the Programmer app. They are found under the “hex”-folder for each example in the nRF5 SDK.
I was trying to program the nRF52840-Dongle with the Programmer application in nRFConnect but had no success.
Thank you. This information will be very useful for our researching process in best dissertation writing services. Keep posting such relevant topics.
An API is that the means that by that I, as AN Applications software engineer, create use of the issue to that the Interface is just too. most frequently AN API are going to be a collection of library functions I will decision from my programing language. therefore there can be a perform known as online essay help UK Beep() that tells the issue on the opposite facet of the interface (perhaps AN operative system) to create a sound. Similarly, AN API is also a collection of network protocols. that the API to an online service might merely say if you send this protocol request, you will get this response.

Hi Keton, and thanks for sharing the great news!
I am happy that it worked out for you, and hope that you find the alpha release useful now.
just FYI upgrading Segger JLink drivers to 6.32c solved the problems. Now it works on our custom boards without reset pin attached.
